Postsecondary Preparation and Remediation: Examining the Effect of the Early Assessment Program at California State University
Howell, Jessica S.; Kurlaender, Michal; Grodsky, Eric
Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, v29 n4 p726-748 Fall 2010
In this paper we investigate how participation in the Early Assessment Program, which provides California high school juniors with information about their academic readiness for college-level work at California State University campuses, affects their college-going behavior and need for remediation in college. Using administrative records from California State University,-Sacramento and the California Department of Education, we find that participation in the Early Assessment Program reduces the average student's probability of needing remediation at California State University by 6.1 percentage points in English and 4.1 percentage points in mathematics. Rather than discouraging poorly prepared students from applying to Sacramento State, EAP appears to lead students to increase their academic preparation while still in high school. (Contains 9 tables, 5 figures and 25 footnotes.)
